FAQ
What's the difference compared to other OpenStreetMap services?

Designing any basemap requires tradeoffs between detail, size and visibility of features at different zoom levels. The unique design goals of Protomaps are:

  • - A library of simple map styles to use as a base, targeting all popular map renderers.
  • - Frequent updates from the main OSM database.
  • - Localization by including all multilingual names.

How is Protomaps being developed?

Protomaps is a 100% independent project with significant open source components. You can find me on twitter at @bdon.
